Information for participants

EXCHANGE 2022 (15.07. – 29.07.2022)


The Young Pilot Exchange is dedicated to international friendship, is a link between pilots from all over the world and wants to convey this friendly encounter to the participants as a basis for mutual understanding. The exchange should bring young aviation enthusiasts from as many nations as possible into contact with each other and enable the participants to get to know foreign countries and peoples as well as their way of life and peculiarities.

Candidates should be fully committed to their respective division. Enthusiasm and some experience for their aviation sport are required. The candidates should distinguish themselves by comradeship, good manners, sportive-fair behavior and the ability to work in a team.
